In the past few days it seems that all my alerts have been eliminated. I had been saving all the alerts that had to do with dividend payouts, so I had accumulated over 100 since starting to make my first picks nearly two years ago. There had been a comment from Dave G that at some point in the future there might be some kind of tracking device (a pull down box or some other method of detailing past dividend payouts). Until that time, I had been saving all those dividend related alerts so I might review how much of my gains had been as a result of stock price appreciation vs. reinvested dividends.

It's possible that I may have inadvertently hit the "Delete all alerts" link, though I've been so scrupulous about saving them I don't think I did that.

So, were alerts deleted wholesale before a certain date, or perhaps when the number reached a certain threshold? Is there still a plan to create a tracking mechanism to show original pick price and the amount that that cost basis has been reduced by dividends?

Just wondering,
